Ribeiro Santo Red Reserva 2014 DOC Dão

Ribeiro Santo Red Reserva 2014


Winemaker Notes
Brilliant, ruby color. Complex aroma of wild berries notes and pine needles. On the palate reveals a good structure with hints of spices and a long, vibrant finish.

Winemaker Carlos Lucas

The harvest took place in the end of September. The grapes were picked up by hand, into small boxes of 18Kg, according to a careful selection of the best grapes in the vineyard. The grapes were totally destemmed into small stainless steel tanks, where they macerated for 24h at low temperature, before starting the fermentation at controlled temperature.
The fermentation lasted about 15 days, with gentle pumping for a good extraction of color and aromas. After the fermentation, the wine was transferred to oak barrels previously used for white wine.
